When using two monitors the toolbar will not show up when setting 'pref.fullscreen.showDelay' > 1500

Description
I am running a virtual machine (Windows 10 Pro) on two monitors in full screen.

I want to delay the time from the moment you hit the top part of the screen and before the VMware toolbar shows up.
This can be done by adding the variable pref.fullscreen.showDelay = "2000" in the file %appdate%\Vmware\preferences.ini

Problem
This works fine when you use only one monitor for VMWare.
But as soon your virtual machine starts using two monitors the toolbar will not show up anymore when you use a value larger then 1500 for the 'pref.fullscreen.showDelay' variable.

Question
Is this a know bug and if so, might there be a workaround to solve this?

Environment
Workstation Pro 16.2.0 build-18760230 running on Windows 10 Pro x64 with Intel I7 and 32GB on RAM
Virtual machine is running Windows 10 Pro
